Brilliant Summer’s Day shots - gallery of readers’ images


THIS stunning image of St Colmcille on top of Binevenagh as he beckons to the sun is one of hundreds of readers’ images in our One Summer's Day gallery.

Budding photographers took to the streets, beaches and countryside across the province on Saturday, June 29 to take photographs of friends, family, pets and beautiful landscapes.

The result is a spectacular photographic time capsule of one summer’s day in Northern Ireland.

This is the third year of our competition, run in conjunction with the Northern Ireland Tourist Board.

Earlier this week, judge Gerry Fitzgerald commended the standard of entries, describing some as “amazing pictures that really capture the essence of summer”.

In the adult category David Flanagan came first with a striking picture of himself in the Mournes.

Fifteen-year-old Jade McCarten’s photograph illustrating a beautiful scene on Murlough Beach was also commended, while Megan Ross won the primary school section.

Among the images now online are Barbara Groves' picture of people at a funfair in front of Bangor's iconic Royal Hotel and a glimpse of the buttercup meadow at Carr's Glen as shot by Sara Duncan on a walk to look for wildflowers.
